Hello. 
Have you met Ana?
No?
Let me introduce you.
Ana's beautiful.
Strong
Shes thin, too.
Ana is perfect.
You want to be like her.
You want to be just like her.
You try so hard
Do everything you can imagine 
to try and measure up.
But ana's always just a little bit 
thinner. 
So you shead those extra pounds and look in the mirror.
Nope.
Ana still wins.
Ana always wins.
So you have to catch up to her.
You try so hard.
Try to be good enough.
But youll never be good enough.
Ana helps you.
Helps hou starve.
Helps you purge if you eat.
You're not supposed to eat.
Ana doesnt eat.
And its not polite to eat
in front of her.
Ana is strong.
Ana can do this, so can you.
She will tell you whats
right and wrong.
Good and bad.
Ana is good. 
She only wants me to feel
good.
Perfect.
Wanted.
Loved.
Ana is bad.
She's killing you.
Starving you.
She says,
"Would you rather
live and be fat
or
die and be perfect?"
